Why you need a VPN for Kodi?
Kodi is open-source software and it pulls media from various sources. With the help of various addons, it brings unlimited streaming without any hassle. The main problem in Kodi media centre is that some of the third party Kodi addons (illegal addons) stream copyrighted media (free movies, live TV, TV shows, Sports) for free. Since it streams the media for free, most of the Kodi users are accessing third-party addons to media that are copyrighted. While streaming those copyrighted contents, your IP will be exposed easily to ISPs and Government. Finally, you will end up in some legal problems. To avoid these problems, we recommend you to use VPN (Virtual Private Network). A good VPN lets you hide your real identity by switching your IP to different locations.
On the other hand, VPN is very helpful in accessing the media that are geo-restricted. Some of the Kodi addons like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and BBC iPlayer are geo-restricted in certain countries. To bypass those restrictions, you need to install a VPN on your device. After trying out several free and paid VPN services, we recommend you to use NordVPN. It is regarded as the best Kodi VPN to safeguard your privacy. While purchasing the NordVPN, make sure to select the annual plans rather than selecting the monthly plans. Moreover, you will also get a 75% instant discount on a 3-year plan.
Purchase IPTV subscription
Before installing PVR IPTV Simple Client, it is crucial to purchase the IPTV subscription to watch live TV channels. Select the best IPTV provider and buy the subscription package in the form of the M3U playlist file. Then, configure that file in the client to watch live TV programs.
